Top Two Questions

Every time I talk to readers who have read and loved my books, I am, without fail, asked two things.

1. Will I ever write SHIFTING 2?

The answer is . . . maybe. I won't say no. I actually wrote it years ago, right after I wrote SHIFTING 1, but then when I got a publisher I changed SHIFTING 1 up a bit so part one and two don't quite mesh. But you never know maybe one day I'll fix SHIFTING 2.

2. When will STUNG be a movie?

Well, I honestly have no say in this. If I knew a movie producer and could get him to read the book, the chances of it becoming a movie would go up drastically. So for now, it is just going to be a book. But thanks for liking it so well that you want it to be a movie!

Vote For STUNG!

Hi there cyber buddies! So, a lot has happened since I last posted. Like, I had a baby. Sigh. He is adorable! (And he's the reason I've been MIA on here for a while--when you have a new baby, and four other little kids you're already the mother of, there is no such thing as FREE TIME! As for the photo, that was actually taken when baby number four was born, so just imagine one more pair of baby feet!)

ANYway, I have some other cool news, almost as cool as a new baby. So, here it is:

STUNG is in the running to receive a teen choice book of the year award!

So, if you think it is vote-worthy, GO VOTE here!!!

STUNG 2 has a title (CURED), a release date (March 2014), and is on Goodreads! Here's the blurb:

Fiona Tarsis is a legend. Her world was ravaged by a lethal virus, her family separated. Her friends were turned into ferocious beasts by an even deadlier vaccine. Mindless monsters now raid the streets. But Fiona has survived. Jacqui Bloom needs Fiona's help. Two years ago, Jacqui's brother, Dean, left the safety of his home to guide Fiona's mother to a safe haven. He never returned. Jacqui has been hiding away in the family house, disguised as a boy, and hoping Dean will come back. But she can no longer live like this. She has to find him. Even with the two men Fiona loves most by their side, leading Jacqui into the desert will be risky. Raiders are everywhere - they will do anything to prevent the beast-cure her group are carrying from being spread - and knowing who to trust is near impossible. Lone traveller Kevin is sexy and self-assured, and has caught Jacqui's attention, but he is hiding his past. Is he also hiding the truth about what he really wants from them? This dramatic dystopian thriller is the perfect cure for addicts of The Hunger Games.

Fifteen Days!

Only fifteen days until STUNG comes out! What have I been up to to get ready for this huge event? Here's what:

Blogging (for other people's blogs).

Planning an awesome party complete with tons of fresh-baked bread, flavored honey, and books.

Author interviews.

Making a stamp of the "mark."

And, that is about it. Most boring blog post ever? Probably. :)
